Native english speaker and university student offering English language lessons from beginner to university level.

Methodology

Being a native English speaker I am able to teach English to people of any age and at any learning level. I aim to make lessons fun and engaging as well as ensuring each lesson is individually created based on the students needs and interests.

Experience

I am studying English language and Italian studies at the University of Reading. I have recently come back from living in Florence, Italy where I worked as an English language teaching assistant in a range of nursery and primary schools.

I have also worked individually with young adults learning English.

I also speak Italian so am able to hold classes in Italian if required.

Olivia's CV

Summary: I am currently a finalist studying English and Italian language at The University of Reading and working towards a career as a language teacher.
Last year I had the opportunity of spending a year living in Florence, Italy. This experience has provided me with irreplaceable and transferable skills, enabling me to enhance my independence, confidence, language fluency and ability to adapt to different situations.

I am a hardworking and honest individual who is always prepared to take on a challenge, happy to work proactively, individually or equally as part of a team. I always give 100% to any task set and like to go the extra mile to ensure a successful outcome.

Experience: English Language Teaching Assistant – Florence, Italy
September 2019-May 2020

Whilst living in Italy, I had the opportunity to work as an English Language Assistant in both primary and nursery schools. I had the responsibility of planning activities for the children as well as leading fun and interactive lessons. It was imperative to show confidence and to address the children in a friendly and approachable manner. The experience allowed me to gain skills in time management, leadership as well as the ability to speak in front of a large audience.

Olivia's response

Olga is communicating well in English! She did well with sentence order activities but had some problems so will work on the rest from home. She needs to practise using english in spontaneous situations.

Olivia and I have grown up together from a very young age. She has always been compassionate, caring and nurturing. She has always been on hand to help others, and is excellent at communication and takes time to solve any problems that may arise. I have witnessed her develop these skills over the years and believe that she is perfect for the role of tutoring.

Olivia has been a close friend of mine for many years and I will gladly vouch for her as a very friendly, approachable and kind person to be around and also to work with.

She has an understanding approach when it comes to learning and knows that everyone works at different levels and their own pace and she will fully support them in their learning. I would recommend her to anyone!

Olivia is very patient , kind and understanding, nothing is too much trouble for her. Learning another language is difficult ,especially if one doesn't speak it all. Olivia has postive attitude and great techniques ,making the sessions so seamless and easy to follow!
Olivia has taught children and Adults English, whilst living in Italy,and built a great rapport with them. Olivia's has the experience of teaching someone who has no knowledge of the language and makes each session personalised to the individual's needs. I would certainly recommend.

I met Olivia by chance on a Tandem app: she was looking for an Italian native speaker while I was looking for an English native speaker, so it was the perfect match!
Olivia is a very kind and patient tutor. I'd recommend her as I totally fell in love with her British accent when I met her!
